I will be receiving a job offer for a new internal position. As with previous internal offers, the HR rep will sit down with me offer me the position and present the offered salary.
Should I accept the offered salary if it is reasonable? What sort of negotiating tactics exist for a "low-ball" offer.
I don't want to overvalue myself, I just want to receive a fair & reasonable wage.
Wage negotiation for new internal position
I would not make waves about it now. Kick butt in your new opportunity for a year or so and approach it from a position of proven strength. I would not take the chance of tainting your new gig with a push for more coin now.
It does not matter what you make in the next 12 months, it matters what you will be able to contribute and thus earn in 5+ years. If you are a rising star, you will be underpaid for quite some time. Have faith that these things will catch up with you in time.
Hope that helps!
After searching the forums, I think I found my answer.
